When Pain Relievers Can Cause More Harm Than Good

As we age, we’re naturally prone to more aches and pains. While acetaminophen and ibuprofen are available at minimal prices, and Americans consume billions of doses of the two drugs each year, they can pose major risks to your overall health.  But do you really know what effects they can have on your body?

PAIN RELIEVERS CAN BE TOXIC

Acetaminophen is everywhere; it is the active ingredient in over 600 over-the-counter and prescription medications, according to the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). But taking too much acetaminophen can damage your liver, sometimes permanently, and prolonged use of ibuprofen can increase your risk of kidney damage, heart attack and stroke, reports the Cleveland Clinic. Side effects of too much ibuprofen also can include severe stomach bleeding (ulcers), heartburn, upset stomach and constipation. Both acetaminophen and ibuprofen should be avoided if you consume more than three alcoholic drinks per day, on average. Ibuprofen and other NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) can negatively interact with certain prescription medications to increase the risk of bleeding.

GO NATURAL

There ARE alternatives to acetaminophen, ibuprofen and other over-the-counter pain-relief drugs. Noxicare, for example, is a formula of natural ingredients, most notably turmeric, a plant that is a member of the ginger family. Traditionally used in eastern medicine, turmeric has many similar anti-inflammatory and long-term pain relief properties as prescription medications, according to the Arthritis Foundation.

Besides turmeric, Noxicare includes other natural ingredients that work synergistically when combined, such as willow bark, holy basil, rosemary, ginger, boswellia and alpha lipoic acid. This blend of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories can help us find relief for conditions such as arthritis, athletic injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, neuropathy pain associated with diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders and tension headaches.

Noxicare is available in both a cream and a capsule. The cream is the only topical formula on the market that uses turmeric as an ingredient, and is best used for site-specific, acute pain.  Alternatively, the capsule is best used for general, overall pain that you may experience daily, in place of acetaminophen, ibuprofen or other pain relievers. Both the cream and capsule are safe for daily use.

DO NATURAL PAIN RELIEVERS REALLY WORK?

Noxicare ran a placebo-controlled blind study of 80 patients who experienced back, neck and nerve pain, and saw great results: 90% of patients reduced their pain by 50% or more over a two week period. Study participants also reported they were able to cut their overall usage of pain relievers.
